Hi,

I've a problem with my mouse on Gentoo. The normal buttons (left/right/wheel and previous/next) work, but the other buttons are not recognized by x. I tried in xev and using them does not do anything.

I'm running Gnome Shell 3.6.

I tried configuring /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf to add the device:

Quote:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "GamingMouse"
Driver "evdev"
Option "Name" "SteelSeries World of Warcraft: Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "16"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16"
EndSection


but it didn't change a thing. I also tried adding these options in the Input class:

Quote:
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
MatchIsPointer "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "16"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16"
EndSection


but again, it didn't worked.

Does someone has a solution to make these buttons work ?

Thanks

Have you checked Arch wiki.

Yes, that's what I've followed. Unfortunately, none of the x.org configuration worked.

For the Match<blah> entries, see post.

It seems to me that it is not a match<blah> problem. If I change the ZAxisMapping my wheel stops functioning, it seems to mean that the match is done correctly on InputClass.

I would think that it is more of a driver problem.

I don't know if it is of any value, but if I do "egrep "Name|Handlers" /proc/bus/input/devices", I got three times my mouse, is that normal ?
I will put the complete output once back at home.

I used xinput to gather some more information:

Quote:
xinput -list
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SteelSeries World of Warcraft: Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SteelSeries World of Warcraft: Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]

It seems that more than 7 buttons are recognized in id 8, so that seems like a good sign, no ? So how could I use this only and perhaps filter the other ?

If u added under windows some reconfigure actions for those buttons they just wont work
( I dont know at least how to make them working, as far as I remember after adding new actions for buttons, xinput shows some new device (keyboard?), u may need to configure it also then)
If u erase all shortcuts for buttons (under windows I guess) all buttons should appear.

Hi,

I don't remember configuring special actions on Windows for the mouse, but I can be wrong...
Unfortunately, I haven't any Windows to change anything on the mouse...
